Re: I missed Queta’s injury

I'd rather be called a pretentious and entitled asshat and about a million other terrible things than a Cougar.

Re: Are we the #1 team in the country?

I think it will be very difficult for USU to remain in the top 15 of the rankings throughout the season. I'll be happy if "we" make the Dance, excited if we win a game in the Dance, and ecstatic if we win more than 1. Long season with lots of unknowns so hopefully our players can stay/get healthy an...

I remember beating UNM in the tournament. I also remember Matisse Thybulle, arguably the best defender in the country last year, destroying us. If we switched Porter for John Stockton in his prime we still wouldn't have won that game.

Re: Confirmed: Aircraft Carrier Commits to USU

I think everyone needs to come to the realization that position-specific traditional basketball that many of us grew up playing no longer exists. I agree that the game has changed. It wasn't that long ago that the NBA would indicate a player's position with PG, SG, SF, PF, C. If you look at NBA ros...

Queta has high hopes for big NBA money and after he got hurt, I'm sure they are playing their cards as wisely as possible to keep him in the mix to still be a top 10 pick.

Do you think Smith will redshirt anybody? If Grootfaam and Stall are both good to go and can stay healthy, I think McChesney may redshirt. My opinion is based more on giving him another year to bulk up rather than his abilities. If the staff brings in another freshman guard, he would be another red...
